Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals and auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) have been suggested as a measure of depth of anaesthesia, because they reflect activity of the main target organ of anaesthesia, the brain. The online signal processing module NeuMonD is part of a PC-based development platform for monitoring "depth" of anaesthesia using EEG and AEP data. NeuMonD allows collection of signals from different clinical monitors, and calculation and simultaneous visualisation of several potentially useful parameters indicating "depth" of anaesthesia using different signal processing methods. The main advantage of NeuMonD is the possibility of early evaluation of the performance of parameters or indicators by the anaesthetist in the clinical environment which may accelerate the process of developing new, multiparametric indicators of anaesthetic "depth".
